Finn WIttrock will participate in the 2016 Orchard Project
Schedule

Finn will be participating in the 2016 Orchard Project in Saratoga Springs, NY in June. This will be the tenth summer for the Orchard Project, a laboratory program where theatre artists and companies come to innovate, develop, and refine new shows.

Our guess is he’ll be joining in on some readings of plays. That’s what he seems to always do when he’s doing something theatre related for now. We tried looking for a specific date that he’ll be doing this, but we didn’t see anything. He’ll just be participating in something in June.

Finn Wittrock talks about American Horror Story Season 6 for The Wrap
American Horror Story

Finn talked with The Wrap today and the interview is here:

“Freakshow” and “Hotel” actor has not yet been confirmed for the upcoming season of FX anthology series

“American Horror Story” star Finn Wittrock predicts that the sixth season of the hit FX show will be “a little tighter” and “more claustrophobic,” although he hasn’t yet confirmed whether he will be a part of the mayhem.

“There’s a little film stuff happening so it might be tough schedule wise, but yeah, I definitely want to do it,” Wittrock told TheWrap, regarding wanting to return for the FX show’s sixth season. “I have heard it is going to be a little tighter — there were so many story lines in the last one and it was so big and epic, I have a feeling it might be a little more claustrophobic. A smaller cast.”

While he is not officially cast yet, Wittrock has talked to the show creators about it, he said. The actor, who was most recently seen in “The Big Short,” starred as the psychotic Dandy in “Freakshow” and doubled as Tristan and Rudolph Valentino in “Hotel.”

“I’ve talked about doing a few episodes, but nothing has been set in stone,” he added. “I think they literally keep us in the dark so we can’t spill the beans even if we wanted to. I’ve heard lots of different rumors about it, but even last year, I didn’t know about ‘Hotel’ until a few months before we started. I know that they are actively writing it right now — they are still figuring out what to do.”

While everything about the next iteration of “American Horror Story” is being kept severely under wraps, Lady Gaga, who mesmerized as The Countess last season, has been confirmed to return.

When pressed for details, Gaga said:”I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that.”

“American Horror Story” premiered in 2011, with Murphy and Brad Falchuk as co-creators. Jessica Lange had previously been the main character across all seasons until she decided to not return for Season 5. Other cast members of all five prior seasons include Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters. Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe and Denis O’Hare have been in several seasons as well.

Peters, who has starred in every single season, told the BBC on May 9 that he was returning for the sixth season, although he didn’t know what character he would play this time around.

Bassett will also definitely be back, telling Entertainment Weekly that co-creator Ryan Murphy gave her a little insight into her character.

“He did tell me at the Golden Globes that I would imbibe a little bit too much and yet I was very inuitive also and maybe Sarah [Paulson] was somehow the boss of me.”

“American Horror Story” Season 6 has no release date as of yet, but given the show’s track record, fans can expect an October premiere.

Finn Wittrock to star in a modern-day movie adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”
Movies

Good news for Finn Wittrock fans! The Variery learned exclusively that there will be an adaptation of Shakespeare’s play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Rachael Leigh Cook, Paz De La Huerta, Hamish Linklater, Lily Rabe and Finn Wittrock will star.

Rachael Leigh Cook, Paz De La Huerta, Hamish Linklater, Lily Rabe and Finn Wittrock are starring in a modern-day movie adaptation of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Avan Jogia, Fran Kranz, Charity Wakefield and Ted Levine are also starring in the film, which completed production on Dec. 18. Producers announced the project Saturday to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The new version takes place in present-day Hollywood where fantasy and reality collide. It’s set in a world where glamorous stars, commanding moguls, starving artists and vaulting pretenders all vie to get ahead.

Casey Wilder Mott wrote and directed the feature, marking his directorial debut. He also produced through his 5B Productions along with Joshua Skurla of Empyrean Pictures, Fran Kranz and Douglas Matejka. Executive producers are Simon Fawcett and Michael Lee Jackson.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will feature original music by Mia Doi Todd and Saul Williams, both of whom also appear in the film.

Cook starred in the TNT series “Perception” and De La Huerta starred in “Boardwalk Empire.” Rabe was a Tony nominee for the Shakespeare in the Park production of “The Merchant of Venice.”

Linklater starred in the Shakespeare in the Park production of  “Twelfth Night” and in “The Big Short.” Wittrock also starred in “The Big Short” and was nominated for an Emmy for “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”

Mott has a decade of wide ranging experience in Hollywood, starting his career at the William Morris Agency and going on to work in scripted development at Flashlight Films, where he oversaw development of film and TV projects for Clint Eastwood, Steve Gaghan and Ed Zwick among others. Prior to his work in Hollywood, Mott was a professional theater actor who appeared on stage in a variety of Shakespearean productions.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” has been adapted into movies numerous times, most recently in the 1999 Fox Searchlight film, which included Kevin Kline, Michelle Pfeiffer, Rupert Everett, Stanley Tucci, Calista Flockhart and Christian Bale.
